You might have to have the sensors recalibrated but there are people on here that got it done for $10, though I believe they got their tires mounted at the same time. If you got those ebay wheels I would recommend getting them balanced before putting them on anyway, so call around and see if you can get balanced and calibrated for a good price maybe.

I've read the 2015 sensors will not work with 2014 and earlier

I Plasti Dipped my wheels as I was on a tight budget for wheels. They look good and cost me a total of $20 and a Saturday afternoon. Now that I have the color I like I will save my money for a very nice set of wheels and tires.

Never had any issues with it coming off? Pretty durable?

From what I heard, the secret is making sure you put enough coats on.

A friend of mine did it to his BMW as well. If you take your time and clean the services good - especially the cracks and crevasses - That stuff will last for a long time. And unless you get your face right up on it, you can't even tell it was done.

Trust us, invest in good quality tires first... you will be very happy you took our advice.

Can I have the size of your current tires? I'd like to do some tire research for you if you don't mind?

215 65 17 I believe. It's the stock wheels on a 2012 Mustang V6 base.

I believe I read it was an easy swap from the 15-16 wheels to the 11-14...

is that correct? or would any adapters be needed? I know I will have to have the speedometer adjusted for the tire size difference, but I have a tuner that should be able to do it.

I plasti dipped my wheels of my Silverado and was fine for about 18 months... until the dealer messed it up doing a tire rotation. Removing it before selling the truck was a pain, but I found that while the cured plasti dip will hold up to a lot, including direct spray from a pressure washer, if you want to remove it you can use your fingernail and scratch a line and use the pressure washer to strip it off. Spent about 2 hours doing it the hard way and once I figured that out... 30 mins to get all the rest off, including decals and letters.

These babies rate off the charts in all categories... You'd be hugging the road in all conditions and have a quiet ride with killer tread wear...


Continental TrueContact

I'm sure you will get some nay-sayers on here but I really don't think you can go wrong with these.

Plus you get a $70 rebate so with shipping it would be under $400! I've used tirerack many o times and never had a issue getting my rebate (I usually hate rebates). Nothing better than seeing fresh new tread on your doorstep when you get home. lol

Found a set of 19" 2015 GT takeoffs for 600, wheels, tires, and sensors. What do you think? Are we sure these fit and the sensors work?

You have a link? Make sure the tread is half decent. For 600, I wouldn't expect new tires. But at least 60-70% tread to hold you over would be hopeful.

2 have about 1000 miles the other 2 have about 20-30k on them.

They are actually 19s off of a 2014, not 2015.

I would say the 2 with 30k on them are probably almost bald. Especially if they were on a 2014 GT w/ track pack. So right off the bat you would have to replace 2 of those tires. Costing anywhere between 400-600. Because the front rims are 19x9. Not sure if on the 2014s if they were staggered. On the 2015s they are.

The more uncommon/out of the norm size you go, the more tires will usually cost. Usually the norm is what your typical car buyer has. 16s, 17s, and in some cases - 18s.

When you get new wheels, tires, and tpms sensors swapped, most places will throw in TPMS sensor rebuild kits for each one. In case they have wear.

Just in case you pick up 11-14 wheels.

My Tires alone were over $1000 for the 4 275/40 19's. If they are 245/45 19 you can get those for around $130 apiece for Firestones.

How many miles are people getting out of these tires on 19s?

Strongly considering the plastidip until I find a good deal on some 2015 takeoffs.

Depends, the 255/40 19 that come on the Brembo and Performance Package 20,000, my friend with the GT/CS that have 245/45 19's had almost 36,000 on his and still has tread left so it depends on the tires

Do most of you go for a staggered set when buying new wheels? Just curious.

Just depends on how well my existing tires are. When I swapped from my 19" Performance Pack rims, I stayed with the 19x8.5 setup all around and reused the tires because they all had a 8 or 9 tread left. Now that the rears are about worn out, I will be swapping in 19x10 on the back near September. But if you have the money to swing it and don't care about your existing setup, I would say go for it.
